    I have a 2004 sxt neon and she is having a problem when acelerating at 3rpms and than cuts out and will get stuck and than go down and engine light will come on . Took it to autozone and they keep coming up with a cam shaft sensor code that we replaced already and low fuel pressure . Checked the pressure and it was at 53 right where it should be.

Hi Noey8,

Thanks for using FixYa.

It is possible that you don't have any issues with your ignition system. Sounds more like you have a fuel delivery system issue. Have you recently replaced the fuel filter for your Neon? I bet not... Replacing the fuel filter had always been neglected by most people. Your car will not go past 3k RPM with a clogged fuel filter, not enough fuel delivered to the engine = no good RPM...

If in case you have recently replaced the fuel filter. Try checking the fuel pump. Go to the nearest shop and have your fuel pressure checked. Mechanics will know if your fuel system has enough pressure to sustain the engine during higher RPMs...

I hope this helps. Thanks and good day ma'am.

    Well it was checked the fuel pressure and it was at 53 and its good between 53 and 61and I dont think my neon has a fuel filter . My sxt will be really nice for a little while and my husband and I actually got her to go up to 4rpms and on the way home my husband accelataed harder and thats when she cutted out and engine light went on and lowered in speed.It studders if you try to get up in speed again.

Sorry but your husband will have to accept the fact that this vehicle has a ECU related fault and its limp mode ,this could be caused by something as simple as a light bulb out ,now this vehicle isnt a dodge but a daewoo with a dodge or chevrolet badge so its made in korea which means its built on the same assembly line as the europeon market vehicles ,which means that the europeon models use encrypted software for fault diagnosis so its possible that you have one destined for europe and its ended up in america ,Its also possible the diagnostic plug is under the bonnet and the OBDII socket for the american emmisions test is under the dash .So the only way around this problem is to bite the bullet and take the vehicle to the main dealer who are the only ones who can read the CORRECT diagnostic codes. Trust me on this one you are not the only one who asks questions like this on here and i do have a list of codes but more often than not the codes that are read are not the right ones because of the encryption used for the cars electronics .Worst offenders for this are renault and VW along with BMW and mercedes ,pluig into a new merc and try to do the american emmisions test and the immobilisor cuts in ,dealer only job and then some sneering receptionist charging the earth for releasing the immobilisor saying illegal access to the OBDII and all i tried to do was read the fault codes.

Where is the cam sensor on a 2005 dodge neon sxt 2.0


Camshaft Position Sensor-On top of engine Operation The Engine Management System (EMS) uses the camshaft position sensor to manage sequential fuel injection and as part of misfire diagnosis. The EMS constantly monitors the number of pulses on the signal circuit. The EMS compares the number of camshaft sensor reference pulses and the number of crankshaft position sensor reference pulses received. If the EMS receives an incorrect number of pulses, Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) should be stored in the EMS. Some engine management systems will then default to multi-port or "gang-fire" injector operation. The camshaft position sensor signal is required to sequence the injector operation to the proper cylinder timing. If the camshaft position sensor or circuit is faulty, most engines will start. However, the EMS misfire diagnostic will likely be affected.
The following symptoms can be caused by an intermittent wiring connections or faulty signal to the EMS.

  • Extended crank time with a cold engine
  • Intermittent rough running
  • Unstable idle
  • Bucking
  • Hesitation
  • Stumble
  • Chuggle
  • Poor fuel economy

Where is the camshaft sensor on a 2004 dodge neon sxt engine and how do i change it


disconnect the negative battery cable. the cmp sensor is located on the left end of the cylinder head. move thebrake booster hose and electrical wires out of the way to access the cmp sensor. disconnect the sensor plug by pushing the locking tab back toward the firewall. remove the 4 bolts from sensor and lift out sensor. remove the trox bolt which holds the target magnet to camshaft. when installing target magnet be sure to line up holes to dowels on end of camshaft. torque torx bolt to 30 in-lbs. be sure to install new o-ring on sensor and torque bolts to 80 in-lbs.

My 2004 dodge neon sxt is giving me a p0340 code how do i fix this


A code P0340 could mean one or more of the following has happened:

  • a wire or connector in the circuit could be grounded/shorted/broken
  • the camshaft position sensor may have failed
  • the PCM may have failed
  • there exists an open circuit
  • the crankshaft position sensor may have failed

With a P0340 OBD-II trouble code, diagnosis can be tricky at times. Here are some things to try:

  • Visually inspect all the wiring and connectors in the circuit
  • Check for continuity in the circuit wiring
  • Check the operation (voltage) of the camshaft position sensor
  • Replace the camshaft position sensor as required
  • Check the crankshaft position circuit as well
  • Replace circuit wiring and/or connectors as required
  • Diagnose/replace the PCM as required

Hope this is for any assistance.

CODE PO 340 SENSOR CIRCUIT CAMSHAFT MALFUNCTION


This indicates that a problem was detected in the camshaft position sensor circuit. Since it says circuit, that means the problem could lie in any part of the circuit - the sensor itself, the wiring, or the PCM. Don't just replace the CPS (camshaft position sensor) and think that will definitely fix it.I hope this helps you

Camshaft


on a neon the cam sensor is located at the drivers side of the engine on the end of the head. it mounts directly over the end of the front camshaft. it is about 3 inches wide and about 2 and a half inches tall. its made of black plastic and has a wire conector in the back of it. these very comonly leak oil so be careful of the o ring and cleaning the mounting surface.

Cam Shaft Sensor Problems


Had the same problem before on my 04 Neon SXT...camshaft sensor is on left side of engine block, take out the battery and to the left of it (face car) is the camshaft position sensor. To change it you'll have to move a few hoses but its plan to see there on the left side of the engine...pretty easy remove and replace. Fixed my problem of car not going above 2k RPM when i replaced the sensor.
